Utopia Tableware has unveiled its product launches for 2021, and through them the company is predicting the tableware trends for the coming 12 months.
With hundreds of new lines covering everything from classic tableware to funky night lights, and ‘barely there’ glassware to art deco-inspired cutlery, the 2021 portfolio is arguably the company’s most diverse ever.
Utopia’s marketing director Kathryn Oldershaw said: “The demand for tableware and barware that’s different, that makes a statement, is just getting stronger and stronger. The variety of our new lines is designed to help operators find their own distinctive style.”
One of the key design elements for 2021 is nature – with earthy, pastoral tableware designs that can present comfort foods, such as a rich beef bourguignon, and colourful ‘eye candy’ recipes such as deconstructed sweet and sour pork. Typical of this trend is the new Umbria Briar collection, a vitrified porcelain that’s hand finished and features a wash of subtle colour. The new Pistachio design, on the other hand, features rich colours that bring depth and substance to the table.
The glassware choice for 2021 is said to mix the exotic with the classic. The range include the new Raffles series, a fine cut crystal collection that draws upon the style of the ‘Roaring Twenties’. Plus the new Ghost Zero glasses from Nude use a special ‘Ion Shielding’ technology that is designed to make them very strong yet light.
Utopia has presented its 2021 launches in its new ‘New Products’ leaflet, which also features some of Utopia’s 2020 launches.
Oldershaw said: “Summer 2021 is going to be absolutely vital for so many businesses in the HoReCa sector. In creating the 2021 portfolio we have been very mindful of the need to give operators an extensive and contrasting choice of on-trend concepts and ideas, to offer them maximum creative potential.”
